The Last of Us Movie

The Last of Us is one of the best games ever produced by Sony in-house developer Naughty Dog. The amazing narrative and emotional connection the two main characters made with each other are hard to deny. It was hard to believe the rumors behind this game getting a film, but now the rumors have been made legitimate.

During Screen Gems’ SDCC 2014 panel, producer Sam Raimi made his presence felt with a huge announcement – he’s helping produce The Last of Us movie. Neil Druckmann, the original writer of the game’s plot, is handling the script writing for the film too. Druckmann and Naughty Dog will have a say over who the final cast and director will be.
